With the reopening of its subsidiary at the beginning of this year, Bull is once again in business in Switzerland , continuing the company’s long history in the country: as far back as 1924 Bull effectively signed its first contract with insurance company Swiss Life. Over the past five years, Bull has been represented in this market by the Group’s exclusive distributor, Steria. Now, Bull is once again taking over direct control of its business in the country and will also provide the full range of support services for its server and HPC (High-Performance Computing) solutions, storage and security products, as well as its innovative offerings based around Open Source technologies.
Bull has put in place a new business organization for its Swiss subsidiary, whose head office is located close to the city of Zurich. Michael Gerhards, Managing Director of Bull Germany, will head up the new subsidiary. The management team for Bull Switzerland will also include Ronald Hitz, Customer Director, and Stefano Omodei, Director of Sales and Services.
